Saketha nikethanasakenanaga lethaa
Oh Lord who lived in Ayodhya , did you not tell that you protect me ?
Neeke marulaithini neekela yi Gunamu
Why this character to you, in spite of my love towards you.
Rakendhu mukha , intha parakemi nenaruka nee,
Rake migula korithiraa Kesiharana,
Rakemaina cheppakuraa kekalu vethuru,
Raa Kesava Sri Thyagaraja nutha Shubhacharitha.
Oh Lord with full moon like face, why this indifference towards me?
Oh killed of Kesi , My mind only wants your coming,
Do not tell me some reasons without coming to me ,
If you do it other devotees would complain ,
Oh Lord with auspicious history who is praised by Thyagaraja.
